h4de5 Posted January 19, 2006 Share Posted January 19, 2006 hi, today i got my new memory: 2x CMS512-3200C2Pro. i ordered them yesterday so i was quiet happy to hold them in my hands already. so i unplugged my pc, get my old memory (2x256mb pc2600) out, installed the new ones, plugged it in and hit the power button. i was kinda disappointed when i here the four magic words: "system failed memory test" i've got 4 memory slots and so i tried out a few varitions with the new and the old dimms. but nothing worked well. after reading the documentations again i was worried if those dimms really fit. it says it supports PC1600 und pc2100 dimms, nothing about pc3200. next i put in my old dimms and started searching the web for help. i found some helpful articels and posts. most of them told me, that pc3200 and the p4g8x just work fine together - but most of the users have a fsb of 200mhz und i can just get 133-150mhz, cause my p4 2.53ghz won't work at those frequencies. after that i gave them a last try: i put every single dimm in every slot and suddenly it worked. a single 512mb dimm in slot1. bios ok, windows ok, and i'll run memtest later. the system won't boot if i put the other dimm in any slot. so my questions: is it even possible to run those dimms in dualchannel on a p4g8x and 133mhz fsb? i can't boot with the second dimm installed - so i can't run memory tests for it. is it even possible to exchange the dimm under guarantee? specs: Asus P4G8x Deluxe (Intel 7205 granite bay) Pentium 4 2.53 Ghz (19x 133Mhz) Radeon 9500 Pro TwinX1024-3200c2pro Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
